National Conference Expectations And Challenges
Nigeria’s National Conference has started and the Nigerian President, Goodluck Jonathan, has said that the government is not in favour of any discussion that will undermine the national unity, designating it as a no go area.
The Yoruba community in the south western part of Nigeria turned down the idea of the no go area insisting that everything about the conference including the national unity should be discussed.
The Director General of the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs, Professor Bola Akinteriwa looked at the importance of the conference and the expectations.
Professor Akinterinwa also looked at Nigeria’s foreign policy in relation with the alleged beating of a Nigerian in South Africa by security agents.
What role does Nigeria’s foreign policy has to play in the incident?
